‘Made in America’ will become post-coronavirus ‘rallying cry’ as consumers demand independence from ChiCom supply chain

Who will use this new "Made in America" rallying cry to his advantage and in a convincing manner?

By Jon Dougherty @TheNatSent

(TNS) After decades of seeing American corporations move their operations to China and successive U.S. administrations kowtow to the Communist leaders in Beijing, President Donald Trump came along and sought to undo at least some of that damage.



The real purpose behind the president’s aggressive trade strategy with China was never to ‘punish’ the ChiComs per se, but rather to get a better deal for America and Americans while decoupling our supply chain from a country we may someday have to fight.



Before coronavirus, the president had actually made substantial progress along those lines. And now, after COVID-19 has led to the sickening and death of tens of thousands of Americans, national security strategist and expert Buck Sexton believes Trump will be able to use “Made in America” as a “rallying cry” to finish the trade-and-supply-chain strategy he started after taking office.

“You’re going to get a lot of people who lived through this who are going to say, ‘Yeah, I’ll pay a little more to know this is made here.’” Sexton said on his Friday radio program.

His website notes further:

The U.S. appears to be hardly alone in the turn inward. Relationships between countries in the European Union have seen similar political shifts since the outbreak. The BBC ran a headline on Friday, titled, “Coronavirus Outbreak Eats Into EU Unity.” The article is about the instinct for countries to protect their own in a time of crisis.

“Right now, every European government is struggling to protect their populations - their jobs, their health and their economy,” the article read. “But rich, europhile countries like Germany are not yet digging deeper into their pockets to help out poorer Italy and Spain. There’s little sense of the responsibility West Germany felt towards the East after the fall of the Berlin Wall.”

Already, U.S. lawmakers are crafting legislation that would further the president’s decoupling trade agenda while moving us away from over-dependence on the Chinese.

Sens. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) and Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) have drafted a bill that would encourage U.S. pharmaceutical makers to bring their manufacturing operations back to America.

Sexton pointed to recent comments made by Trump’s economic adviser, Peter Navarro, who touched on the issue in a Thursday press briefing.

“Never again should we rely on the rest of the world for our essential medicines and countermeasures,” he said. He continued, “One of the things that this crisis has taught us is that we are dangerously over-dependent on a global supply chain for our medicines like penicillin, our medical supplies, masks, and our medical equipment like ventilators.”

Navarro noted further that in addition to overreliance on foreign medical suppliers, countries that make vitally needed medical products have also imposed export restrictions in order to keep those supplies in their own nations during a time of need.

“No one thought this was a problem until now,” Sexton said. “The lack of foresight with all of this has been stunning. And it’s more than just lack of foresight. There are people who, all along, have refused to make what are the decisions that are the best interests of America and the American people.”



Who will use this new “Made in America” rallying cry to his advantage and in a convincing manner? The president who introduced us to “Make America Great Again” and “Keep America Great,” of course.

Every time you as a consumer purchase a product “Made in China” or Vietnam, you are supporting their Communist Government’s decision to move from a self sustaining food system that is mostly carbon neutral to urban factory workers (very high carbon footprint) who then have to buy food grown on commercial farms using millions of gallons of diesel fuel… plus, much of it has to be imported from USA (more heavy crude oil being burned in marine diesels)

When you are shopping, if you pick up an item that says “made in China” put it back.

Not about race, it’s about communism entrenched in the US. Remove all Chinese citizens from this country. Feinstein also.

This all sounds good right now but what will really happen when the Wuhan dust finally settles? My guess is that big pharma, autos, appliance and medical equipment makers will go right back to the status quo to make more money.

I would love to see me be wrong and watch the above sectors begin the arduous process of returning at least 50% of the products to “made in America”. Think of the good paying jobs that would create to help us get the economic engine running smooth again.

A question everyone needs to address is,Who has done more dammage to the USA: foreigh terrorist or the US multinational corporate managements and their lacky board of directors. Destroyed the middde class and working class. Moving 70,000 plus production plants and whole industries out of the country, to line their on pockets.

This is one of the reasons I voted for President Trump in 2016, his business sense is proving to be astronomical and correct from the beginning.
The funny thing is I had never cared for him as my thoughts were he is a show business personality who I abhor, but forced myself to have an open mind and listen to his speeches, changed my mind and decided to take a chance, glad I did.
MADE IN AMERICA is a rallying cry.

I predict the robot age will come to full flower because of this. We can use robots to reduce costs beyond what any human can work for. We are already on the cusp of this. Those who fear not having jobs when the robot age hits don’t understand economics. There will be such massive depreciation in the cost of items that you won’t need to earn much to buy what are considered luxury items now. You’ll spend $10 for your currently $1000 iPhone, or get it free for taking a survey or something. Human service and entertainment will become the… Read more »

Today I emailed the company that makes an OTC sleep aid as it says “distributed from San Fran, CA”. When something says where it is “distributed from” I believe that usually means it is made in China. I also advised this company if it is made in China they need to bring their product either back to the US or to a country we can trust. We need to contact more of these country to make our preferences known that we don’t trust China products.

Who could ever forget the toddler toys from China that were painted with something that turned into the Rufie drug when the little kids chewed on them? Chinese crap is poisonous, I don’t care if American companies set the manufacturing up over there, it’s Chinese with their filthy habits who are doing the work.

Your witnessing the End of the Chi-Coms and The Establishment that Propped up the Chinese by giving them Our Wealth. Everything that’s come out of the Establishments mouth has been Lies. From Old Dead POTUS Bush to Obama, everything THE Establishment did by getting these POTUS’s to give them what THEY wanted, all was to Screw America out of her wealth. Now the Chickens have come home to Roost and THEY are in Panic mode. If THEY’re Smart they will keep a low profile, we all know there’s People in America that might be thinking, lets go after them.

No one thought this was a problem??? Are you freakin kidding me, everyone I know knew, when our corrupt government was outsourcing manufacturing and insourcing jobs, that it all would eventually go to crap.

Just make sure that when we start pushing the “Made in America” agenda, the fine print doesn’t say “with foreign parts.”

Return manufacturing to
America ???
It probably won’t happen in large numbers.
Like I said before, what drove the jobs over there in the first place is still in play here.
Patriotism is all fine and dandy. Will Congress back up the rallying cry ???
I’m not holding my breath.
